“rubbish service, have cancelled my account after 1 day!”

Written on: 30/09/2011 by lunar15 (1 review written)

i placed my first order with simply be yesterday. ordered 12.10, so way before the 4pm cut off. phoned up to make sure it was clear i wanted to pay the 'next day delivery' charge. paid by debit card, never asked for a credit account. no mention of any delay because of being a new customer-all seemed fine. waited in today, got to 3.30 and thought i'd just track my parcel online, still 'processing'. phoned up- some rubbish about credit checks, was told the couriers work up until 8pm, but, would i… Read Full Review

“Pointless, unresponsive and bureaucratic”

Written on: 09/09/2011 by Trolleyb (1 review written)

I have been waiting for a pair ov £160.00 boots for over three weeks. When I have emailed they have fobbed me off with 'we'll get back to you in 24 hours' but they don't. All the time they are charging me credit on my account for goods I don't have! When I finally found the number on the website I was told that they had to send me a letter out in the post so that I can fill out the details of what I have already told them. Then I have to POST it back in order for them to deal with my query. I… Read Full Review

“Very poor quality clothing especially for the price”

Written on: 02/09/2011 by cece6466 (1 review written)

I bought a few items from the USA simply be location. I am very disappointed in the quality of their clothing. Being a regular Lane Bryant shopper there is absolutely no comparison. The jeans bought were so ill fitting and the rhinestones on both paris of jeans came off during the first wear. Save your time and your cash!!!!… Read Full Review

“Never recieved parcel”

Written on: 25/08/2011

I never recieved the things i ordered and have had to pay for them, the parcel was delivered and signed for at a house a few doors down, i have the card that was left through my door to prove that and simply be will not accept that so i have had to pay for the items to avoid my acount being defaulted and it appearing on my credit report. I am reporting them to trading standards as the terrible experience i have had and the fact they wont admit they are at fault is just unacceptable. Hopefully i… Read Full Review

“Didn't get what I ordered”

Written on: 18/07/2011 by KatJoyWhite (3 reviews written)

With a large bra cup-size I started shopping on Simplybe because they stocked a bra I couldn't get from a shop. My experience was fine then, so when they e-mailed me about a sale, I went to their site hoping to find a bikini (you don't get much selection for F-cups on most sites). I was really excited when I found a gorgeous teal halterneck bikini I used to have in another colour when I was a smaller size, and it was on sale! Waited quite a while for delivery and then when it finally arrived… Read Full Review

“Cute clothes, but not worth the horrible service. ...”

Written on: 15/07/2011 by roselane (1 review written)

I really like the way the clothes look, although the quality varies quite a bit. My complaint with this company is that you are ordering clothing from overseas and I wasn't aware of that. I thought they were expanding their company into the US, but that isn't the case. I ended up having to pay customs on an order for it to be released to me. The cost was over $60. I was told that the amount would be refunded to me, but I am starting to wonder because it's been several weeks. I think that… Read Full Review

“Appalling quality, poor service”

Written on: 29/06/2011

One of the dresses started to come apart after 2 washes so i returned it. They charged me a £3 late return fee which they took off my credit card. When I complained they credited it to my account. An account they credit checked me for and awarded me £400 limit without me asking for it and despite the fact I paid up front. I emailed several times and they were insistent they did not take the £3 from my credit card. They advised me to send in my credit card statement to get a… Read Full Review

“First and last order for www.simplybe.co.uk”

Written on: 23/06/2011

Today I received somebody elses order! When I called their customer services number, they kept me waiting for ages at 10p+VAT per minute. I asked them to call me back as it was their mistake and they said they can't as they only take calls and don't make them unless it is an emergency. So my order has gone AWOL and my card has already been debited. I have to be around for when their courier comes to collect someone elses order too. To make matters worse, one of the items I ordered is out… Read Full Review

“Wish I had seen these reviews BEFORE I tried to order”

Written on: 04/06/2011

I wish I had seen these reviews before I had tried to order from Simply Be yesterday. I chose three items costing over $200 US, all showing in stock on the web page. The confirmation email said two of the items were backordered. Got another email 3 hours later saying the one remaining item in my order was being canceled. I called the number to ask why the third item was being canceled and was told it was out of stock. I asked them to cancel the two remaining items and was told I would have… Read Full Review

Shalanna's Comment

Written on: 10/03/2012

I have had some of the same issues with them. Too bad that they can't be honest and straightforward, because the clothes are lovely WHEN YOU CAN FINALLY GET THEM. I can't track my package because they don't have any tracking number on the website under my account, so I have no idea if I will ever get this order.

Written on: 06/05/2011

Well for the US site, it takes 2-3 weeks to get items that are in stock. Items that are out of stock, well there's no telling!

It's been almost a month that I've been waiting for backordered sandals. I ordered in advance because I'm going overseas and they are still not here. I called and they don't even have an update and they didn't even offer to cancel my order and issue a refund.

I just sent back a jumpsuit that was too big and I can only imagine when the refund will be… Read Full Review

“While the dress looked great on the website, it was...”

Written on: 07/04/2011

While the dress looked great on the website, it was not in person - but then again, it just did not look good on me. The problem lies in returning the merchandise from the US back to the warehouse in U.K. I sent the package back 3/16 and on 3/25 it was in transit to the U.K.warehouse - it is now 4/7 and I still do not have a refund. I've contacted customer service - they are rude and what people in the U.S. don't realize is that you have to wait until it is received by the warehouse in the… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/03/2011

In my opinion this company has the worse customer service I have experienced since MFI and I can only hope that they go the same way.

My order should've been delivered by today but apparently it was damaged in transit by their courier and sent back without me ever seeing it. Did they replace the order and send it promptly? NO! They appear to be treating it like a customer return and they will refund my money when they see fit and I have to reorder online, losing my discount and having to wait… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2011

I ordered a dress my size and when it finally arrived, it was far too big. I called and asked for an exchange to the next size down. Arranged a date for collection/delivery and although it was the same courier it had be two transactions. Courier never arrived. Phoned Simply Be and was able to speak to the most unhelpful and rude customer service staff I have ever come across. I cancelled the order completetly and I will not deal with this company again. (The courier actually arrived some days… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/03/2011

As a US customer I was charged a tariff on value of merchandise before postal service would release package. $43 on a purchase of $220. Customer service didnt have a clue. Was told I'd have to fax proof and a copy of my check then it could take 6 weeks to get a refund of the tarriff. I order from other uk clothing companies ALL the time, have NEVER experienced this OR the lack of knowledge on the part of customer service. Simply be doesnt need me.......... I'd rather spend money for… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2011 by Englishrose212 (1 review written)

Ordered some clothes about three years ago which did not come on time so had to buy something else from a high street shop. Sent the clothes back which came to about £90. After about a month I got an invoice for the payment. Rang Simply Be to tell them I had sent the clothes back but still keep getting invoices which kept rising in price. Next thing I know they have black listed me on my credit report to the price of £274. After many letters and phone calls I paid this off and then pursued a… Read Full Review

“I ordered over $300 work of clothes from simplybe.com...”

Written on: 11/03/2011

I ordered over $300 work of clothes from simplybe.com over two and a half weeks ago. My order finally came yesterday (much to my delight). The clothes were just as cute as I had expected them to be. One dress was too big, but I had ordered it too big. It was the correct size that I had ordered. I did have to pay customs and shipping once the package finally got here, which just added to the cost. But being an overweight woman it was worth it to me to have cute clothes that actually fit my… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/03/2011

The customer people who answer the phone here in the States are friendly enough but there is something seriously wrong with this company. Items ordered end up being out of stock but no one tells you this and I only found out after 5 or 6 phone calls. Then getting the refund has been excruciatingly difficult. It takes a number of phone calls to get any correct information from these people.
I haven't yet received any merchandise so I can't comment on the quality ....but I am not hopeful after… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/03/2011

I bought 3 pairs of shoes, all different brands, for "wide feet" (E fitting) that looked very pretty on the website. However when they arrived, they weren't wide at the ball of the feet and the toes like normal "wide shoes" (they pinched my toes, and I fit into wide childrens shoes). Instead they gave room around the ankle and sides of the feet and are obviously for larger ladies who carry some weight on their feet. They looked ridiculous on me. I don't understand why they aren't able to… Read Full Review
